Notes from Nonna
Amy Morris-Young — who learned from both the Jesuits and her Nonna to view the world not only with her eyes, but with her heart and soul — shares that perspective in her monthly column.
Notes from Nonna: Can we talk about how wonderful grandchildren are? I mean, really, who knew about the joy that was coming if we could only survive our kids' teenage years and early 20s?
Some of my dearest family and friends embrace political positions that that fiercely contradict mine, but I still strive to love them. Being yanked between the ferocious ends of our current moral and political tug-of-war seems makes that difficult in the extreme.
When I'm in the middle of what feel like back-to-back catastrophes, I have learned that if I give in to even a bit of self-pity, I can rely on being thumped soundly on the head by God and the universe. And rightly so.
Notes from Nonna: As much as you think you want to be all grown up right now, I am happy that you can't read or understand the news. Very scary things are happening in our country right now.
